+ What academic level is required in order to solve the case?
To solve the cases, you must have good skills within data processing, economic theory and presentation. Our ambition is to make an interesting and challenging case, and it is therefore a prerequisite that you are a student of economics or at least on team with some. You can practice your case solving skills in our events leading up to The Case Experience. Both the Partner Pre-Case in collaboration with The Ministry of Finance and Nail the Case workshop in collaboration with McKinsey & Company hone the necessary skills to compete in The Case Experience.
+ In what way is Polit Case Competition different from other case competitions?
Polit Case Competition is different in several ways. Our cases draw on theory and tools from the economics study programme and in The Case Experience participants can interview experts during the case solving process. Furthermore, all teams will present their case solution in front of a professional panel of judges and receive feedback subsequently.
Polit Case Competition is also more than case solving, hence The Case Experience. In this, we host an exclusive dinner for all participants and provide opportunities to engage with interesting employers of economists from different industries.

Teams must be between 3 and 4 persons. The Case Experience allows for 30 teams while the Partner Pre-Case has 20 team spots only. Nail the Case Workshop has 50 individual seats.
